This is for the scientists and scientifically or authorship inclined among us (it happens to reference some events alluded to today):

Oh I'm so glad I stayed up to find this. One of the funniest things I've seen in a long time, thank you Master Tell!


Oh yeah, and skies, if you read this, find yourself a sense of humour please, it would really help us all to get along much better.

mister scotty : when you'll have something really funny to say , we can laugh about it, no problem !True tho , i prefer british humor ,gentlemen oxford accent , but a scot flavor is probably cute too ,only depends if it is smart enough to hear about .Of course , can't be easy for you to want so much to be in that boys club here and wanting to laugh with me. I can see a contreditory dilemna on that .

I never let my first year postdocs do the reviewing for me. I usually give them to rotating grad students. They know so little they can't possibly be biased right? Thanks for reminding me that I have 4 reviews due next week. Now where are those students?

I like Scientific American (what I can understand of it) Am I being duped? Or is is it a slam on on the acedemic ? (I think I know the anwser to that, but it doesn't take much to go over my head) Ich mochte frei sein !

ScAm is more of a "popular" press outlet, so it's really a different beast...it might be along the lines of saying "well, the NYTimes and WashPost won't publish my book review, so I'll do it in Rolling Stone" (not a good analogy, but you get the idea). There have been many good papers published in ScAm, but in general it would be viewed not so much as "lower in status" but as too "popular" if that makes any sense...

I read journal articles in my good chair and at my desk. I read SCI AM on the couch and the pooper.

PS I've seen several different of this Hitler clip and they are all hilarious, including this one - even to us non-academics.

I found Hitler boring so I NEVER watch anything about that guy .As for those who need to hear and see about hitler , they get boring too . Hitler was only a dude among other dudes doing dudes's stuff:hating, jiving,killing, blabla . What's new under the sun ? Bush ? Obama ? Sarkozy ? Ben Laden ? I only see there more dudes hating, jiving, killing .Strange how men claim to never see nor hear what's so alike to themselves pretending it's only the other ones out there who were doing "it" !

It's not about Hitler; it's about peer review...are you trying to be moronic?

I love me some peer review, expecially when it comes to statistical adjustment of climate data.

How do cover up that fact that someone is not really a frog?
